In ____ Years Time...

In ____ Years Time...



Hey everyone


I'm doing the Get To Know Me Link Up from Elizabeth over at {Moonlit Goodbyes} for the month of November - so here's the next instalment...



Day #22 - Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years? - I'm a massive believer in positive visualisation so I like to plan out my life and where I want it to go on a pretty regular basis; there is no room for negativity in my life!

In 5 years time I'll be... 24 
I will have finished uni by then so I'd like to have passed my degree with a good degree grade
I'd like to be starting off my career in a path lab of a hospital
I'd love to still be with the bf - maybe engaged by then? (Tiffanys *hint hint*)/
I'd like to be living in my own place - well my childhood home just without Ma :P
I'd like to still be blogging :D
I'd like to be as happy as I am now.


In 10 years time I'll be... 29
I'd like to be either married or at least committed in some way to the bf
I'd like to have travelled more
I'd like to be settled into my career and making my way towards a specialism 
I'd like to have a fur baby (or two...or three :P)
I'd like to be as happy as I am now.

In 15 years time I'll be... 34 
-(this seems light years away!)
I'd like to do some sort of research in my field (and maybe end up with a Nobel Prize :P)
I'd like to have adopted a child
I'd like to be as happy as I am now.



Where do you see yourself in the future?

Check in tomorrow to read about my hobbies :)

Hey everyone

So Ma and I are gonna have a new addition to our household in the next couple of weeks... a cute ickle puppy dog!



Initially I was pretty apprehensive because I miss {Daisy} so much that I didn't think a new puppy would be able to fill that void but as soon as I saw her I just about died of her cuteness!

 I'm so excited!

Carpe Diem...

Carpe Diem...

Hey everyone

I was rudely reminded yesterday about the extreme fragility of life. I heard that my old friend from primary schools 12 year old brother had died. Of a suspected heart attack. At 12 years old? This is just crazy - how can young healthy child just drop dead on the football field without any previous issues with his heart. It makes no sense. And that is a sad fact of life - it's unpredictable. And although I haven't been close to his sister for a good few years, we still grew up together - our parents were still best friends at one time - it has still hit me pretty hard. I can't even begin to imagine what his family must be going through. It's just devastating.

The instability of life has just been brought home to me and it saddens me that this is what it took. We all are guilty of being complacent with life and the people in it. We shouldn't be. We should seize each moment and cherish our time here because the sad fact is that it could be snatched away from us at any moment in a way which had never even crossed our minds.

So I'm saying this to you - Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Live your life - don't waste it.
RIP Joe

Book Club Friday: Evil In Return...

Book Club Friday: Evil In Return...

Hey everyone


I am so happy to be linking up with Blonde...Undercover Blonde for this link up again this week! I've missed a couple of weeks because I've not really had a book to share with you all because all I've really been reading is my textbooks! Sucks to have the life of a student - only kidding :P Anyways...


 This week I'm sharing - Evil In Return by Elena Forbes



Synopsis (via Goodreads

Bestselling novelist Joe Logan walks out into a hot summer's evening in central London. The next day his body is found dumped in a disused Victorian crypt at the Brompton Cemetery. He has been tied up, shot, and castrated. The killing has the hallmarks of a professional hit. But what had Logan done to deserve such a brutal end? 
Detective Mark Tartaglia is convinced that Logan's personal life holds the key, but unravelling the victim's recent past proves difficult. Then the body of a second man is found in an old boathouse on the Thames -- killed in an identical fashion to Logan. A vicious and methodical killer is at work, but what does he want and how does he lure his victims to their death? If Tartaglia can find the link between the two dead men maybe he can find the killer before he strikes again



My Thoughts

Now we all now how obsessed I am with Sherlock Holmes (see previous BKF posts {here} & {here}) and this has sparked off a new found love of detective stories so when I spied this in a 3 for £5 sale I picked it up just to give it a go - and I'm so glad I did! I literally read it in one day!

The plot had me hooked all the way through - I definitely did not see the ending coming at all! If you ask me the book had just the right abouts of murder, intrigue and good old fashioned romance to be believable. I really enjoyed how all the aspects of the puzzle were wound together and how the common thread to it all was placed so delicately that upon reading you didn't really pay much attention to it but looking back when it was blindingly obvious how it all fit together - the mark of a great detective story if you ask me!

The characterisation was so good - there was a clear back story for basically all of the characters involved and how they all interlinked was gradually revealed - so engaging as a reader. I particularly enjoyed how the theme of being an author and writing was the key to the book - an interesting twist. 

I could waffle on so much more about the awesomeness about this book but I don't want to give anything away - so if you have read this book then please comment so I can share my thought about it's awesomeness to you or if you plan on reading it drop me an email when you have so we can discuss :) I've already lent this to a friend of mine so I can chat about it to her!

Although it no way matches the incredible-ness that is Holmes it is a great read if you like murder mystery/detective stories. Plus, I didn't even realise that this was book 3 in a series so I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series - bonus!

Would you read this book?

Halloween Recap...

Halloween Recap...

Hey everyone

As I mentioned in my last post I spent Halloween Night at my uni's Halloween Ball :D 


It was an incredible night - it was great (if a little scary at times!) seeing literally everyone dressed up - my faves were Shaggy from Scooby Doo and even Disney's Stitch! The besties went as Bloody Nurses (compete with stethoscopes!) and I went as Medusa...



Going as Medusa was such a great choice because I was the only Medusa there - yay points for originality! And the whole costume only cost me £15 to buy ready made - so no difficult crafting for me!

Highlights of the night.....
  • People 'turning to stone' when we made eye contact
  • Watching a Thriller flashmob - so cool!
  • Dancing with my buddies to cheesy Halloween music - Monster Mash anyone?
  • Meeting a guy by chance who had Medusa tattooed on his bicep - and he asked for a picture with the two Medusa's #prettycool
What did you dress as for Halloween? Did you have a good night?
